Your task is not just to pick up the calls, but also to react appropriately to the situation – sometimes giving first aid instructions is enough, at other times a police, fire department or paramedics’ intervention is a necessity. Keep in mind that the person on the other side of the line might turn out to be a dying daughter’s father, an unpredictable terrorist, or just a prankster. Can you handle all of this? Expand

    911 Operator is a joy to play, and you'll want it to go on for longer. It's not perfect, though - satisfying pay-offs to stories are absent, and it would be great to be able to purchase new resources during a level.

    Having only heard about 911 Operator before, it is a nice fit for the Switch with its nice use of HD Rumble feedback and with how good the port is. The game itself starts feeling repetitive after a few hours but if you’re a fan of games that test you with tension and quick actions, this is definitely one to look into. As a simulation experience, it does its job very well and the Switch port is great.

    If you’re the kind of person who wants to get a taste for what it’s like to be a emergency dispatcher, that kind of setup will appeal to you.

    Those looking for a big investment of gaming will probably do best to avoid this title. But those after a nice palette cleanser, I recommend 911 Operator. It’s not going to light the world on fire, but is a decently-crafted little time sink that works well on the Switch. If you’re looking for something to do in-between catching Pokémon and settling it in Smash, 911 Operator is a nice buffer title to call on.

    911 Operator is fun little title, but you have to get past a lot of repetition. The difficulty can be a little harsh too when you don’t understand everything that’s going on. I lost quite a few units at the beginning of the game as I didn’t know what I was sending my police officers into. By the end, though, I was flying through the scenarios with ease. You could comfortably finish the game in a few hours, but for such a budget title I think that is reasonable. If you fancy challenging your mind for a few hours with something that isn’t too frenetic, then you might want to give this a go.

    911 Operator really misses the mark. It’s a good attempt at showing what a 911 operator may do, but you’re effectively playing a mobile game on the Switch for the cost of a PC game. That $22 price point is a bit excessive, especially since various bugs and quality-of-life issues you’ll get are really frustrating to deal with on the Switch.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I liked the game - an interesting idea and implementation, non-standard gameplay. What else can be noted? There are easter eggs. You can get first-aid skills) I was pleasantly surprised by the opportunity to find your hometown and play on a real map of my city) Expand

    A really interesting and addicting game. The DLC adds a lot to the game and it's pretty cheap too!

    The game has a lots of opportunity but unfortunately the full picture is not good. There is no option to delete the data or a save game. WhenThe game has a lots of opportunity but unfortunately the full picture is not good. There is no option to delete the data or a save game. When I start a new city but something went wrong I can't load the previous save because no options for this!!! So if something wrong it will be wrong forever. It's a big mistake. Expand
